One thing that strikes me more and more as I look at the shots is how the whole piece is "atmospheric", in the sense that the story telling really comes across from the pictures.
This is truly well done, with passion, and that also transpires.
Please keep posting!

p.s. I especially enjoy the smoke effects on parts of the battlefield.
p.p.s. The flags are also quite beautiful.

Thank you once again for everyone’s kind comments they are most appreciated and inspire me to keep up the pace.

Thank you Sala for the comments on the flags. These are Nap flags printed out on the computer. I mount the glued flag and then ‘drape’ it whilst the glue is drying.Cotton cords are then added and painted giving a nice effect. I personally do not like square flags on units as they are not realistic unless a force ten wind is blowing.

The main antagonists have now arrived and the French are in the ascendency.

I am currently fighting the next move and hope to have some more pictures soon.

Thank you again.

Chris

Du solltest ein Buch dazu machen. Es ist wie Geschichtsunterricht, dazu werden deine Szenen immer perfekter.
Das sind echt tolle Projekte, die du machst.
Liebe Grüße, Wolle

Another great installment.

I think the picture that best encapsulates your use of smoke is this one;

Here, the cotton wool just blends in perfectly. Awesome shot.

But to me, the one that takes the cake is this one, for its intimacy.
